American Predator A gripping tour de force of investigative journalism that takes us deep into the investigation behind one of the most frightening and enigmatic serial killers in modern American history, and into the ranks of a singular American police force the Alaska PDMost of us have never heard of Israel Keyes But he is one of the most ambitious, meticulous serial killers of modern time The FBI considered his behavior unprecedented Described by a prosecutor as a force of pure evil, he was a predator who struck all over the United States He buried kill kits cash, weapons, and body disposal tools in remote locations across the country and over the course of fourteen years, would fly to a city, rent a car, and drive thousands of miles in order to use his kits He would break into a stranger s house, abduct his victims in broad daylight, and kill and dispose of them in mere hours And then he would return home, resuming life as a quiet, reliable construction worker devoted to his only daughter.When journalist Maureen Callahan first heard about Israel Keyes in 2012, she was captivated by how a killer of this magnitude could go undetected by law enforcement for over a decade And so began a project that consumed her for the next several years uncovering the true story behind how the FBI ultimately caught Israel Keyes, and trying to understand what it means for a killer like Keyes to exist A killer who left a path of monstrous, randomly committed crimes in his wake many of which remain unsolved to this day American Predator is the ambitious culmination of years of on the ground interviews with key figures in law enforcement and in Keyes s life, and research uncovered from classified FBI files Callahan takes us on a journey into the chilling, nightmarish mind of a relentless killer, and the limitations of traditional law enforcement, in one of America s most isolated environments Alaska when faced with a killer who defies all expectation and categorization.

    True crime has been a guilty pleasure of mine for at least 30 years I remember working in a public library and happily discovering the 364.1523 shelves where even today I still browse, although TBH public library budgets often prevent a lot of trashy ephemeral reading material from making it to the shelves These days, true crime has become a pop culture THING, and there s no shortage of readily available books, movies, and podcasts dedicated to what used to be very much a niche market I was True crime has been a guilty pleasure of mine for at least 30 years I remember working in a public library and happily discovering the 364.1523 shelves where even today I still browse, although TBH public library budgets often prevent a lot of trashy ephemeral reading material from making it to the shelves These days, true crime has become a pop culture THING, and there s no shortage of readily available books, movies, and podcasts dedicated to what used to be very much a niche market I was very happy to receive an ARC of American Predator by Maureen Callahan from Penguin Group Viking and NetGalley in exchange for this honest review.The blurb for this book says most of us have never...

    It s not easy to write a good true crime book My criteria for judging the genre is 5 stars for a book like In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, The Executioner s Song by Norman Mailer, and anything written by Thomas Thompson Four stars for anything by Ann Rule It s very rare to find a book worthy of five stars, though I have found several over the years Four stars is a little bit easier to find, and a good example might be Maureen Callahan s new book, American Predator.Callahan s serial kil It s not easy to write a good true crime book My criteria for judging the genre is 5 stars for a book like In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, The Executioner s Song by Norman Mailer, and anything written by Thomas Thompson Four stars for anything by Ann Rule It s very rare to find a book worthy of five stars, though I have found several over the years Four stars is a little bit easier to find, and a good example might be Maureen Callahan s new book, American Predator.Callahan s serial killer, Israel Keyes, is a scary guy and the epitome of a stranger killer I don t think he killed anyone he knew, though he didn t confess to all his killings So perhaps his father s death, which was suspi...

    Unsettling, to say the least Using the Organized Disorganized model of serial murder proposed by some researchers, clearly Keyes would fit the organized serial killer, who frequently meticulously planned his crimes in advance, often burying caches of weapons, zip ties, everything he d need to commit rapes, arson, and murder And never left any evidence. He has been credited with 11 murders, and suspected of which, unfortunately, will never be known, as he committed suicide before Unsettling, to say the least Using the Organized Disorganized model of serial murder proposed by some researchers, clearly Keyes would fit the organized serial killer, who frequently meticulously planned his crimes in advance, often burying caches of weapons, zip ties, everything he d need to commit rapes, arson, and murder And never left any evidence.
